Regenerative Agriculture and Apparel

Tin Shed Ventures® is Patagonia’s corporate venture capital fund that, like our parent company, is solely focused on saving our home planet. Tin Shed contributes to this mission by investing a portion of Patagonia’s profits into startups that provide systemic and globally scalable solutions for the land, water, air, and biodiversity crises underpinning climate change. We specifically focus on strategically relevant solutions that reduce the environmental impacts of our core businesses in apparel and food, which allows us to add unique value to our portfolio companies. We hope the joint value we create will yield returns that allow us to give back to our sole limited partner, our home planet.
